Dr. Eban Alexander, a neurosurgeon, will be the subject of my first exploration into the common astrological patterns between Johann Goethe and current people who have achieved a form of conscious awareness in their own way. Goethe achieved his spiritual contact and awareness through a process of inspiration. Many of the current people who have done so have experienced a Near Death Experience or NDE. Not all, however, have followed this approach. We will explore a variety including NDE’s, Out of Body (OOB), Inspiration, Suicide, Religious or faith experiences, Accidents, Lightning strikes, etc.
Dr. Eban Alexander was chosen to be the first of those whose stories would be examined for several reasons.
- The doctor was an older adult when his medical problem arose and lead to his ‘death’, coma, and return to life several day later. He did not need a source of celebrity or income as many others might have.
- He was an established medical professional, ethical and committed to helping others. He was unlikely to lie or misrepresent what he believed to have happened to him.
- The nature of his hospitalization was such that the primary thinking area of his brain was being eaten away by bacteria. No activity was registered there. He was totally brain dead and his body was functioning completely due to equipment. All of those records are kept and able to be verified.
- He was in a coma for a week, unresponsive until he suddenly awakened.
Many of those claiming these types of experiences appear to have reasonable doubts about the veracity of their telling of such events. They write books, they go on tours, they create web sites which one can subscribe ($) to, and are generally not directly accessible except through highly channeled ways. Their birth data is seldom available. If any of these subjects are used in these explorations, these concerns will be raised.
All of those covered in this blog site will be those who seem real and sincere, and whose following life seems to reflect the profound changes that they claim have happened to them. Dave
